Very good food, but a bit on the pricier side. Decent selection of beer, but nothing too special; a rotating IPA tap, lots of Sweetwater, Dogfish 60, and a seasonal Sam Adams are the highlights in between a bunch of macros. Sam Smith is the cool stuff in bottles, plus more Sweetwater. I have never had a bad time with service, but it appears other people do. Not a beer loverís paradise but a good pace to grab some pizza and a decent beer to accompany your food.

Great pizza (but expensive). Usually have a few decent micros on tap (always sweetwater - as everyone has noted). By no means a vast selection though. Definitely recommend for the food.

Not a great beer destination. A fair pizza joint if youíre going to a Seminole baseball or football game. Decent selection of Sweetwater brews. From what I can see, looks like your best shot at a new beer is an experimental/seasonal/unusual brew from AB or Sweetwater. The wait staff gets overwhelmed following a game. They didnít have a waiter on the patio, which seats a bunch of people, on a busy night and folks had to queue. Pizza is good but slightly pricey. Not as successful as it could be.

Not really where one goes when looking for great beer. They consistently have something interesting on tap but at the end of the day itís a college chain restaurant. Would visit again for the food!

Update: June, 2011.

I thought it was time for an update on my rating below, as I have now been back several times. All in all, this isnít a beer-loverís dream, but itís still a decent place. A fair amount of brews on tap, the buffalo chicken calzone is stellar, and they have good cheap specials on macros if youíre in the mood for PBR. The service is always horrifyingly slow, however, from the moment you sit down to the moment your food comes you are always wondering where the waitress is. Yet, I keep going back.

I feel like I should be giving this place a higher rating, as it was decent, but it just had too many flaws for beer drinkers and non-drinkers alike.

The ambiance is fine. A nice clean place with goofy mushrooms and stuff like that all over. Well lit, and if itís nice you can sit outside. Unfortunately when I went we had 12 people and they had nowhere for us to sit except outside, and it was hot as balls out, which sucked. Not their fault, I suppose.

This leads, however, right into the service. The service was absolutely awful. I donít know if they were understaffed or what, but our waitress barely paid attention to us, which was a dumb move because you can make plenty in tips from a group of 12. Also, we wanted plenty of beers, but we had to wait and wait and wait for them.

The selection of beers is decent, but nothing crazy that you probably havenít had before if youíre into beer. About 10-15 on tap and 20-30 bottles.

The food is pretty damn good. I had a calzone and lots of people got some tasty looking pizza. It was all good.

The value is average to a bit pricey. They charge a fair amount of bucks to add toppings to pizza, and certain ingredients, like chicken, cost double.

Overall, a cool place to visit if youíve got some money and want to drink some decent brews with your good pizza. Be prepared to be there awhile, though, if itís busy.

Great, albeit pricey, pizza. Atmosphere is fun, service not bad. A handful of drafts to complement your meal, but thatís about the only reason to head to MM.

I love the MM! 100 beers, kick ass pizza, fun decor and great service. No complaints here!

Like any other MM establishment, except the draft list seemed limited. Enough variety but not great. Pricey pizza but very good as usual. If youíre in Tallahassee and need pizza and a good draft micro, itís worth the stop.

amazing pizza that goes great with the decent draft selection, highlight being the sweetwaters which wash down pizza perfect. newcastle, guinness, and a bunch of other macros besides the basic AH. service not bad, really quick sitting at the bar. if you go to FSU like me, its not a bad place to get lunch and beer.

Took a while to finally get one of these in Tallahassee. Excellent pizza as always. Plenty of staff avaialble to help you. Taps were non-descript outside of the three types of Sweetwater available - 420; Blue and Hummer - first place outside of Georgia I have seen this many. Standard macros and imports for bottle selection. Within walking distance of FSUís Doak Campbell Stadium - good place to eat before, during or after a game - plenty of TVs and "coeds" to keep you occupied while you wait for your food.
